Welcome to Remember the Ladies! Our goal in this podcast is to learn about and share the life and legacy of individual women throughout human history from both a historical and a sociological perspective.
Each episode will focus on one woman from history. Sometimes they’ll be well known women, such as Eleanor Roosevelt. Other times they’ll be mostly unheard of out of their local histories, like Emily Fish the woman lighthouse keeper in Monterrey, California.
We are also looking forward to having special episodes focusing on women’s contributions and influence in specific fields, such as science, railroads, and aviation. Additionally, some episodes will likely focus on women as a whole in societies of the past.
